cbrPager – simple comic book pager

cbrPager is a simple to use, small viewer for cbr, cbz and cb7 (comic book archive) files.

This software has a small footprint and is fast in operation. It can view jpeg, gif and png images, with adjustable zoom.

cbrPager can also be used as a viewer for many file managers such as Midnight Commander or Rox.

Features include:

  • Simple to use.
  • Configurable.
  • Works on any RAR-compressed image archive – normally the extension would be .cbr or .cbz, but other extensions work too.
  • Advance/backup pages, and jump to the beginning or end of the archive.
  • Go to the top of the next page (or bottom or stay where you are).
  • Same possibilities when paging backwards.
  • Zoom in and zoom out (10% steps) and return to 1:1.
  • 1 or 2 page view.
  • Supports jpeg (jpg), png and gif images.
  • Remember the last directory visited on startup, or always start in a defineable directory.
  • Determine the initial size of the pager.
  • Define where the navigation bar should be and its orientation.
  • Keyboard accelerators.
